Yes you are, provided you and your sport qualify under the application guidelines of one sport per calendar year. In 2009, we were turning down kids applying for repeat funding but, thanks to the generosity of our community we are now able to fund all kids that qualify including kids who have had grants in past years.
A professional in social work, family services or a school counselor/principal or a public health nurse but not your child's coach.
Registration fees in a sport that has a recognized provincial body up to $250. A link to the list of eligible sports is on the Apply for a Grant page. Not covered are sport camps, travel or equipment costs or fund raising portions of registration fees. Sport BC - BC Ferries does have a program to assist with team travel.
KidSport™ does not cover the costs of equipment. There some other organizations that equipment may be available through including; City of Victoria H.E.L.P for hockey equipment and Canadian Tire Jump Start.
Sports that are governed by a provincial sports organization qualify including; baseball, soccer, hockey, lacrosse, football, swimming, gymnastics, karate, basketball, figure skating, water-polo, track & field, triathlon.

Once per calendar year. For example if your child receives funding for a sport in the spring of 2012 they would not be eligible for funding in any other sport or in the same sport until 2013.
Approximately one month from receipt of the application, however most sports will allow your child to start play at the beginning of the season should you advise them that you have submitted your application to KidSport™.
Yes we do! Most of our volunteer opportunities are event specific. Go to the How You Can Help page.
